A reunited JANE’S ADDICTION, DEPECHE MODE, TOOL and THE BEASTIE BOYS head an eclectic lineup of artists at this summer’s LOLLAPALOOZA FESTIVAL set to take place in CHICAGO’s Grant Park AUGUST 7th-9th, reports EONLINE.COM.
Other big acts on a bill that features more than 85 bands are THE KILLERS, KINGS OF LEON, LOU REED, BEN HARPER AND THE RELENTLESS 7, THIEVERY CORPORATION, SNOOP DOGG, RISE AGAINST, ANDREW BIRD, TV ON THE RADIO, NEKO CASE, VAMPIRE WEEKEND, THE DECEMBERISTS, STS9, ARCTIC MONKEYS, KAISER CHIEFS, ANIMAL COLLECTIVE and BEN FOLDS.
Electronica fans will get their fill in the DJ Tent featuring such world-class turntable masters as SIMIAN MOBILE DISCO, BASSNECTAR, DEADMAU5, THE GLITCH MOB, HE SAY SHE SAY, LA RIOTS and MONEYPENNY, among others.
Cofounded by JANE’s frontman PERRY FARRELL, LOLLAPALOOZA was one of the most popular and influential traveling carnivals in the early ‘90s. After dwindling ticket sales, he and fellow organizers followed the lead of COACHELLA and BONNAROO and transformed their brainchild into a weekend bash held in THE WINDY CITY.
